A Riddle

July 27, 2006 at 12:30pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Inner thoughts upon my face,
Upon the wind I try to flee.
If a Gadsden flag had I,
It would read “Don’t Write on Me!”

What am I?

Torn Notebook?

Ding ding ding! We have a winner! The answer is Torn Notebook. Good job, foxspit!

The artist kept his “inner thoughts” in his notebook, which was one of the piece’s inspirations. The sculpture looks like pages blowing in the wind. And the “Don’t Write on Me!” part comes from the idea that even though the piece resembles a notebook, you aren’t supposed to actually write on it.

Didn’t like this riddle? Hey, it was my first stab at one. I never claimed it was any good. I’ll have another one for you tomorrow.

If I might ask…what was the thought process behind Imelda Marcos?

beerorkid July 28, 2006 at 5:10am

cuz I had no fricking clue, and even I do not know where my random thoughts come from wink

kinda scares me sometimes, I had to google the correct spelling.

Great riddle!  Too bad I needed a clue to solve it.  I love that it had a local touch!

Mr. Wilson July 28, 2006 at 1:02pm

Heh, glad y’all liked it. I’ve never been much of a riddler, but a couple started popping into my head yesterday so I figured I’d see what others thought. Maybe this will become a regular feature.
